Spring Break Activities for Kids

I know a lot of folks (kids) are already enjoying spring break, and many (kids) are looking forward to next week, so they can relax and enjoy a bit of time off.  As a parent of three such kiddos, I have been doing some searching for fun spring break activities, that won’t break the bank… and that won’t cause TOO big of a mess! (Because really, I don’t want to be cleaning up messes on our week OFF).  Sharing what I’ve found so far…

From SheKnows.com, a great post with four craft project ideas… but I especially like this yarn butterfly DIY project.  They are all easy and fun spring break activities!

From The 36th Avenue, a tutorial on how to make paper bead bracelets – my daughter is going to be making a TON of these, I’m sure!  I love that it doesn’t require a lot of supplies, and I can even recycle some old magazines!

From Parents.com, a very simple craft that can then be turned into a game that can be played (and played and played some more)… magnetic fishing game craft!

From BHG, check out these adorable lightbulb sheep – so stinkin’ cute, and you aren’t really limited to just sheep… birds, dogs, cats… the only limit is your child’s imagination! There are actually 20 Easter crafts to make – check them out by scrolling through the pictures.

And from Martha Stewart, a project that includes some learning AND long-term fun!  Eggshell flowerpots – a perfect after-Easter activity!

Fun Easter Craft Ideas

Easter will be here before we know it, and it’s time to start making your decor and DIY plans!  (I have a birthday party to plan this month too, so I may be getting overly anxious – we do still have 20-something days to get our Easter DIY on).

Here are some fun, unique Easter DIY projects I found… some are practical, some are not, but all are Diva-licious!

First up, if you are looking for Easter wreath ideas and your a crafter, you’ll love this wreath tutorial from A Lemon Squeezy Home.  I love her very detailed photos, and this looks easy to make with a lovely WOW factor:

From Polka Dot Easter Eggs, from Style At Home.  These would be lovely in a centerpiece basket, especially with a variety of colors.  When you click through to this post make sure you scroll to see ALL FIVE of these fab Easter egg crafts!

A very Diva idea from Stylizimo… golden Easter eggs!  I love how simple this is – ugly Easter eggs with gold leaf painted on.  Gorgeous!

And from BHG a very shabby chic idea for Easter egg door decor! This is only one of 25 Easter egg decorating ideas in their post – make sure you scroll through all of them!
